The research, described in Nature Biomedical Engineering, found the model was better at identifying issues such as pneumonia, collapsed lungs and lesions than other self-supervised AI models. In fact, its accuracy was similar to that of human radiologists. While others have tried to use unstructured medical data in this way, this is the first time a team's AI model has learned from unstructured text and matched the performance of radiologists. , and it has demonstrated the ability to predict multiple diseases from a given X-ray with a high degree of accuracy, says Ekin Tiu, a Stanford undergraduate student and visiting scholar who co-authored the report. “We are the first to do this and demonstrate it effectively in this area,” he says. The model code has been made available to other ...
